It’s All About Love.

“It’s all about love. We fall in love with ourselves the minute we see our true Being. There’s no other option. It’s so beautiful. If we really believed that we were worthy of love – and that, in fact, we are the love that’s waiting for us within our own hearts – every second of our day would be different. Every single second. Immediately.”

~ Krishna Das 

This quote really struck through to the core of me, I have been falling in love with myself for a while now and I have shed a lot of layers, but is there still a layer or two in the spiraling levels that my heart holds that may not have completely let go? I am the closest I have ever been to that place, have experienced it while journeying in deep spaces, know that in some ways everything else that is going on is a distraction, and yet it all does serve a purpose.

The seconds of the day are very different for me than they were even 6 months ago, much less a year or more, but it can shift some more, there is always room for expansion. When I reflect on the shift I can see that self-love really is at the core of what has changed within me, the critic speaks less and less, more and more I allow myself to deserve abundance in all areas of my life. And I am harvesting, not always in the way I thought I would but when you give things to God/Goddess you have to surrender to the way in which your intentions come to you.

In a talk by Ram Dass he tells a story of how his guru told him to love everybody and to speak the truth, if you haven’t listened to Ram Dass I highly recommend him. I decided to take on loving everyone as a spiritual practice some years ago when I was still in the big city and it was a most enlightening experience. I realised that I was judging people all the time without even realising it, every time I noticed this habit I changed it to loving the person instead. This brought me into a beautiful loving state every time, do this often and you are beginning to approach being in that place of loving kindness more often than you are in consensual reality, which tends to be a bit more dour.

A good reminder which I am going to take on for myself, although I tend to love everybody where I live because I live surrounded by beautiful people, it will be interesting to see if it seems much different.

Love is all you need.

Fierce Grace is a beautiful documentary of an extraordinary soul who describes his stroke as “being stroked”, if you don’t have time to watch it now save it for later, it really is a deeply moving story.

And here is Krishna Das chanting “Ma Durga”, one of my favourites, chant along with the music and feel the vibration of the Sanskrit language, it has a lot of power.

My Guru, My Guru.

I used to think that Gurus were not such a great idea, it seemed to me that in order to have one you had to give away your power, and I was doing that enough without adding to it! I guess it would have been St Germain that would have been my guru but he was temporary in coming through Azena Ramanda, so I moved on to direct communication after that. Not being attached to a particular form, he brings me messages in many different ways. I thought having a guru on earth might be a bit of a drawback, taking the focus away from self, but after hearing stories of their guru, from Krishna Das and Ram Das, I have a different perspective.

They can be a doorway into that deeper dive into the self, into the quantum field of raw potential, a true guru will not take your power. What you choose to give away is your business, enjoy the stepping up into the limelight as you empower yourself with every step. A true guru will assist you in finding coherence, where the heart and the head and everything else is vibrating at just the right frequency, that of love. You can go there in so many ways, keep exploring doorways, it’s the evolution into a spiritual future, enlightenment.

I am my own guru these days, getting clearer and clearer on that one, developing the shamanic pathways for healing, bodywork, psychic/aura readings, sound healing, holistic counselling, writing/teaching. Lots of fun and inspiration to be had, bit more tech savvy would be good, me learning or help, don’t mind which one. But gurus can connect you to the place in yourself where you ARE LOVE, they can inspire and uplift in all sorts of different ways. Ram Dass is a guru no doubt to many, adepts or addicts, need to get stuck and then eventually be free of method, in the end we are all one in the unified field of consciousness that Rupert Sheldrake talks about, he and Bruce Lipton finally met properly and this is the conversation, its long but well worth it!

In India when we meet and part we often say, ‘Namaste’, which means: I honor the place in you where the entire universe resides; I honor the place in you of love, of light, of truth, of peace. I honor the place within you where if you are in that place in you and I am in that place in me, there is only one of us.

~ Ram Dass

MInd Be Still.

In the most ecstatic experiences of my life I have felt expanded and light and my mind has been quiet, this seems to be common for most people, and if one looks at this in a scientific way it can be said that we are in the right hemisphere of our brains when this occurs. This is certainly the space that I inhabit when I dance, it’s how I’ve tried to live, but even though I’ve resisted the intellectual approach, to my detriment at times, the mind, or the left brain, has still played a dominating role in my life.

It’s the mind that told me I was separate from everything else, and that I was not good enough or sufficiently deserving to have prosperity. The idea of being in your ego when you have low self-esteem seems laughable, but as I continued my journey of understanding myself, I came to the realisation that I was as much in my ego as an arrogant person is. When you move into unity consciousness everything is one, so it isn’t possible for one person to be better or worse than another.

I remember the first time I really got this knowing, I was doing a workshop in 2004 called ‘Dying to Live’ in which we explored the notion of what it would be like if we knew we were going to die at a certain time. We went into this in a very full and shamanic way, it was not an intellectual discussion, it was a lived experience, and it gave me a  very different perspective on my life. Who did I think I was, not to be expressing my gifts into the world, who was I to stop the flow of spirit through my being.

It’s taken me a while to fully take this idea on board, there was still a helluva lot of crap in the way of my light shining out, but in the end I have to say I’ve done ok, particularly if you go by what Krishna Das has to say on the subject.

If you want to know if you’re making progress on the so-called spiritual path, see if you’re kinder to people; see if you’re a little easier on yourself; see if you obsess about your own self and all this stuff in your life a little bit less; see if you’re happier in the day in a simple way, more content; and see if you’re treating people more like you would like to be treated. That means it’s working.

A wise man with a great sense of humour and extremely humble, he is also a master when it comes to chanting the sacred sounds of God, Goddess, All That Is. Check him out in this clip:
